The artist carefully observed and recorded the distinctive proﬁ le of the ruler’s nose and his long, curly beard. The sculptor also brilliantly communicated the differing textures of ﬂesh and hair—even the contrasting textures of the mustache, beard, and the braided hair on the top of the head. The coiffure’s triangles, lozenges, and overlapping disks of hair and the great arching eyebrows that give such character to the portrait reveal that the artist was also sensitive to formal pattern.
